Light, enjoyable and charming.
The Royal Flush books are a nice addition to the cozy mystery genre
Yes, in the first Royal Flush - it was just as good this time around
No extreme reaction - I just enjoyed 8 hours of escape in to a vanished world :)
I love non-gruesome murder/mystery novels so I had fun with this one. It's a cute story with endearing characters. I look forward to reading the rest of the series!
I have enjoyed this series very much and this installment is right up there with the rest of them.
Georgie is priceless as is the cast of characters that follow her around. The narrator Katherine Kellgren absolutely makes this book, have to give 50/50 credit to both her and the author. Between the two of them, this is a super winning series and I cannot wait to move onto the next one.
Favorite authors: Donna Gabaldon, Dorothy Dunnet, Anya Seton, Daphne Du Maurier, CS Forester,Alastair Mclean, Irving Stone, MM Kaye, L'amour
I would recommend this to all my gal pals. Very entertaining and Katherine Kellgren gets the acents down perfectly. This is the type of book that i would prefer listening to as the reader sets the tone and makes you laugh and feel you are there.
I enjoy not only the characters and the story but the glimpse into the time and place in history. A gifted reader makes it even better.
If you enjoy a historically based novel, have a background knowledge of the English royal family, enjoy a strong female character, like mysteries, & enjoy twisted humour - then you will love this series. There is a bit of romance, but it doesn't overshadow the storyline. The reader does a great job depicting the cast of characters. Would love to hear more by this author.
Less stereotypical characters and a better plot.
The characters' voices sounded like parodies of bad actors - nothing like real people.
boredom and irritation
I've been a fan of mysteries since getting up with a notebook to solve Scooby Doo cases. I now write my own.
Yes. When time permits I'd probably listen to this one again. There were a few things that caught me off guard, and I'd like to see if I missed them, or they were missing.
No, but few do. I'm just not wired that way.
In other books Georgie stumbles (often literally) onto clues and situations where she finds herself in a position to learn some important fact. This is one of the first times we see her actually work something out and set out like a "real" investigator and it was nice seeing her take that step.
Ineffective and silly. I suck at tag lines.
The author seems to have a style of crafting 98% of a great cozy with a little action and a bit of romance, then tossing the whole thing out the window for an over the top contrived melodramatic action scene for the closer. This is the first time we see it, but not the last.
I'd like to see Georgie get into a more realistic tight spot at the end, and then get out of it on her own, as opposed to being rescued by an interested third party.
Stumbled upon this series by accident…
The books aren’t long, usually approx. 8 hrs with good narration.
I’ll say this, Georgie’s got moxy.
I like hearing about the history and goings on in the time frame of the book. Lady Georgeanna is a likeable character with a good bit of naivete that nearly gets her in serious trouble at the beginning of the book. She is intrepid if not entirely sophisticated and manages to make all her catastrophes so relevant to us ordinary humans. She is interesting and intelligent and Darcy is luscious.
Georgie's hanging upside down from the cliff face.
I really enjoy good British readers and she is one. She has just the right tone for Georgie as well as her wild and crazy friend, Belinda.
